Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: March 15, 2005
Bug(s): #74700
ID: 200503-18

Synopsis

The Ringtone Tools utilities contain a buffer overflow vulnerability, potentially leading to the execution of arbitrary code.

Background

Ringtone Tools is a program for creating ringtones and logos for mobile phones.

Affected Packages

Package: app-mobilephone/ringtonetools
Vulnerable: < 2.23
Unaffected: >= 2.23
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

Qiao Zhang has discovered a buffer overflow vulnerability in the 'parse_emelody' function in 'parse_emelody.c'.

Impact

A remote attacker could entice a Ringtone Tools user to open a specially crafted eMelody file, which would potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the application.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All Ringtone Tools users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-mobilephone/ringtonetools-2.23"
